The Guardian praised McVicar's "witty, sexy, and tragic post-colonial framing of Handel's Caesar and Cleopatra tale," which incorporates elements of Baroque theater and 19th-century British imperialism to illuminate the opera's ideas of love, war, and empire building. The world's leading countertenor, David Daniels, sings the title role opposite Natalie Dessay as an irresistibly exotic Cleopatra. Baroque specialist Harry Bicket conducts. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=127889 Metropolitan Opera Metropolitan Opera
